Route description
Route description

This looped Ultra will begin and end at the Queen Elizabeth Country Park. Guided by Matt Buck, you will traverse the fantastic South Downs Way trails before heading towards the coast via ancient woodlands, nature reserves, and small villages. This Ultra will be run at a sociable pace to cater to everyone's needs. Expect some hills which will be a great first taste to become accustomed to the trail running Ultra scene. The final part of the run will take you along the Sussex border path, then on to Stanton way where your loop will end.
